Reviews

Reviewer: Mind Wondrin - - May 24, 2015
Subject: 2nd of 5 "Ladies" shows
Skipped by the Ladies & Gentlemen disc set, this is the lesser show of the week, giving little indication of what would come the next few days. Nonetheless, three songs from this show were used for the Skull Fuck album, released later in the year.

1st Set. There are no AUDS of this show and the more-recently-appearing SBD is missing the best-of-all-time Bertha/Uncle opener! Just kidding - nobody knows. The songs mostly repeat all week but this was the only Big Boss Man and though it's not the best of the tour it was used for Skull Fuck. Dawk Staw, conversely is maybe the best of the year! It's very Billy/Phil-centric and hits some unique places. I can see why they used this Wharf Rat for Skull Fuck. It's better than the one on the 28th (but not the best of spring '71). Loser was played every night this week but this one's best.

2nd Set. Duane "narc" Allman (look it up!) sits in on the first few so the band has to play pretty straightforward. China is out of tune but Mama Tried is the best of the week and was used for Skull Fuck. The Good Lovin' is much better than the one used for Ladies (25th). Supposedly there's a Deal missing as well.

1st Set: C+
2nd Set: C
Overall = 2 1/2 Stars

Highlights:
Dark Star (one of year's best)
Mama Tried (on the Skull Fuck album)

Subject: Not on Ladies and Gentlemen... The Grateful Dead
This is actually the only show from the run at the Fillmore East that has no cuts included on Ladies and Gentlemen... The Grateful Dead.

Great week of shows. I was there.
